There ought to be a law against such unauthorized activities.

Its cool Martin, even God knows better than to sprinkle meteors on backyards in Menlo Park.

Am I the only person who wonders why the Almanac chose to censor the prior thread on this topic?

Curious, The Almanac didn't restrict the thread to registered users. A person who begins a thread has the option to restrict it, and apparently WoodsMoire did so, either intentionally or inadvertently.

Oh sure Renee. Everybody knows you are part of a Government cover up of this incident......OK, so that's not really true, but I thought I would be the first to start the rumor, while wishing you a Happy Holiday season....Best to you and your family.

<Web Link;

I'm afraid it is true; it is a government cover-up. See this video, taken from Area 51. These certainly don't look like meteors to me. We've all seen pictures of meteors.

There's only one explanation. Aliens. And they've come to manipulate the elections in their determination to take over the world.

Remember the recent record setting "parachute" jumper, who said his name was "Felix Baumgartner?" He landed in Roswell, NM. What we are watching are some of his extra-terrrestrial buddies. Need I say more?

I would tell you a lot more about this, but I have to take my meds. now.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
